STEP UP AND STAND WITH US!

Campaigning for the right of women survivors of violence and their children to access support and protection.

Who we are

We are a European-wide campaign of the WAVE Network, aiming at increasing efforts to stop violence against women, raising awareness of the issue, mobilizing widely for the rights of women and children to live a life free from violence, and protecting women survivors of violence.

What we believe

Public pressure will create change.

People are stronger together. We need to mobilize, organize and build communities capable of standing together and demanding change.

Knowledge and education are powerful. Free access to information is essential for driving change.

In Europe, the Istanbul Convention is the most powerful legal tool in our hands; its implementation is a crucial step towards ending violence against women.
